This cross-stitch design is of two doves, each holding a golden ring,superimposed on a shaded pink heart. The doves are surrounded by a border that gives the appearance of ‘lace’ with hearts in the middle of it.
The image may be used as a wedding gift, an anniversary remembrance, or just in recognition of the affection that is felt between two partners. It is the perfect image of true and lasting love.
Suggestions are made to make the design as personalized as possible. Color of the fabric or ‘lace’ may be changed. Wording and lines under it are optional. If a personal message is preferred, it may be inserted instead of the name / date.
An alphabet and numbers are charted and a blank graph is provided for the stitcher to use to establish the spacing of the personalization. Whole stitches and back-stitching are used.
